    31 Mar 2015 | 1:18 pm
     “Reality TV” is one of those phrases that inevitably begs for scare quotes — with its staged scenes and melodramatic confessions, a reality TV show’s relationship with reality can be … complicated. But Morgan Spurlock, director of documentaries like Super Size Me, suggested that the new online video series Connected might live up to “the promise of… Read More

  • The Evolution of Communication: From Journalism to Blogging to Tweeting. And Now? Meerkasting?

    30 Mar 2015 | 3:57 am
    I have been thinking about this trend way before Meerkat was a thing. In fact, I believe it first occurred to me before Twitter was a thing. Now before I explain why I think the trend is clear, let me state that I do not believe that each link in this chain replaces the one that preceded it. I believe that each stage remains relevant but its relevancy decreases as the new stage enters. So let’s take a walk down memory lane. Remember websites? I kid. But really, remember traditional journalism? You know, those big sites for which journalists, real journalists would write after completing…
  • Entrepreneurs: It is Officially No Longer Acceptable to Say These Four Words

    23 Mar 2015 | 12:27 am
    By: Hillel Fuld (@hilzfuld) There are many advantages to having an active blog. In fact, I wrote a whole post about why everyone should blog. Branding, traffic, relationships, and so many other reasons people should be generating content of some sort on a regular basis. Over the years however, I discovered one more perk of blogging. Whenever something annoying happens in my world and I notice it is happening consistently, instead of addressing the issue each time, I try to write about it and send that post to the next person who does it. Ok, that sounds totally cryptic. Here are a few…

  • How to Cope with the Insanely Saturated Social Landscape when Trying to Build a Business

    16 Mar 2015 | 1:50 am
    If you are active on the social web, surely, you get this question a few times a week, at the very least. “How do you find the time to be everywhere? I mean there are so many platforms out there and you seem to be active on all of them. How do you balance it all?” Truth be told, the social landscape is a little bit out of control. Every week, there is some new app that marketers will tell you, you have to pay attention to if you want to build your brand. First it was just Facebook, then how could you possibly not be on Twitter? Then Linkedin entered the content marketing space? Then…

    Going to college used to be a reliable education path to a well-paying career -- as well as a way to create a society of engaged and informed citizens. The workforce has changed a bit over the last few decades, and college degrees aren't necessarily the best indicators of employee performance anymore. Sure, everyone still needs an education, but being able to learn on your own and pick up skills years after you've been handed a diploma are far more important than where that diploma was printed. Considering that student loans are rarely ever forgiven, people might want to choose their…
  • Subway, McDonald's And Burger King Sued Over GPS Tracking Patent... Or Something

    Vera Ranieri
    31 Mar 2015 | 3:47 pm
    GPS technology has been around for a while. Wikipedia puts the start of development at 1973. But it wasn't until the 1990s that it became available for consumer use. And even then, it took some time before the government removed restrictions on accuracy that it had on its use by civilians. (The government had added an intentional error to the signal that made GPS variably inaccurate up to 50 meters.) With the loosening of restrictions on GPS came furious development in consumer applications—and a flurry of patents. Which brings us to this month's Stupid Patent of the Month. The dubious…
  • DOJ Inspector General: ATF, FBI's Drones Worthless, Expensive And Completely Mismanaged

    Tim Cushing
    31 Mar 2015 | 2:40 pm
    The DOJ's most infamous drone deployments involve justifications for extrajudicial killings. But its agencies also have fleets of (nonlethal) drones, something these agencies tend to avoid discussing until sued into doing so. The Office of the Inspector General has taken another look at the drones deployed by DOJ agencies and found that, while plenty of money has been spent acquiring and maintaining drones/operators, very little deployment is actually occurring. Our September 2013 interim report found that between 2004 and 2013, the FBI spent approximately $3 million to acquire small UAS it…

Now it comes out that the Justice Department revealed the existence of this investigation to Ross Ulbricht's lawyers five weeks before Ulbricht's trial -- but then blocked Ulbricht's legal team from using that information, even as the Justice Department continued to rely on evidence from both of the apparently corrupt federal agents.

    Xbox and 343 Industries on Sunday released two live-action trailers for Halo 5: Guardians to encourage Xbox One owners and holdouts alike to "hunt the truth." The trailers aired during the season finale of The Walking Dead. In one trailer, the story catches up with Master Chief scorning an injured and supine Spartan Locke with an unsettling benediction. In the other trailer, the roles are reversed, and it's Spartan Locke who's walking menacingly up to the downed Master Chief.

    The White House in January proposed updates to the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act that have stirred controversy within the cybersecurity industry. The proposals would allow prosecution under the CFAA of insiders who abuse their ability to access information, while setting aside insignificant conduct. "If the proposed legislation were to be enacted, it would certainly have a chilling effect on cybersecurity research," Chris Doggett, managing director at Kaspersky Lab North America, told TechNewsWorld.

    After battling a DDoS attack for four days, GitHub has restored normal service levels. The primary target of the assault is, which is hosted on GitHub. GreatFire has attracted the ire of the Chinese government for offering anticensorship tools. "Very clearly, the Cyberspace Administration of China is behind both of the recent DDoS attacks," said GreatFire Co-founder Charles Smith. The attack used malicious code inserted in Baidu Analytics to turn millions of unwitting users into procreators of crippling DDoS traffic.
  • Compliance Mindset Can Lead to Epic Security Fail

    30 Mar 2015 | 12:15 pm
    The recent data breach at Premera Blue Cross -- in which the personal information of some 11 million customers was compromised -- raises questions about how effective government regulators are at ensuring that healthcare providers adequately protect their patients' data. There have been abundant warnings that compliance with government regulations alone would not be adequate to protect companies from the kinds of cyberthreats the world faces today. However, Premera learned that lesson the hard way.

    YouTube on Friday announced that it would begin supporting Ultra High Definition 4K video content. YouTube officially unveiled the news via TestTube, an incubator for new features concocted by its so-called mad scientists. YouTube developers have posted six experimental videos that can be streamed at up to 2160p -- essentially a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160. The videos support 60 frames per second, and thus are sharper and smoother than the common frame rates of 24fps and 30fps.

  • Four Security Exhibits That Won Without “Booth Babes”

    Bill Brenner
    30 Mar 2015 | 4:25 am
    After last week’s post on RSA Conference banning so-called booth babes, I heard from a lot of people who agree vendors need to find other ways to attract attention during security conferences. One reader correctly noted that this unfortunate phenomenon isn’t the result of bad intentions. It’s just that some marketing teams don’t know any better. They assume the booth babes work because they see others using them. What to do about it? Give marketing practitioners some examples of successful exhibits that succeeded without the sexism. Here are four examples of exhibits…
  • RSA’s Move to Ban Booth Babes

    Bill Brenner
    26 Mar 2015 | 3:33 am
    The language above has been added to exhibitor contracts for RSA Conference 2015. Zenobia Godschalk, a communications practitioner in the security industry and vocal critic of so-called “booth babes” at conferences like RSA and Black Hat, dropped me a line to say RSA added the language to force vendors to stop with the skimpy clothing. It appears the years of blowback over booth babes has had an affect, at least in RSA’s case. In an email, Zenobia said, “We are thrilled to report that RSA has actually changed their language in their vendor agreements this year! It now…

    Every once in awhile, someone in the security community says something on Twitter that ignites emotional discussion (some call it drama). This past weekend, it started with a comment about hugs. Someone commented that some security cons involve a lot of hugging and that it makes her uncomfortable. Someone responded with a comment about the benefits of hugs. Then all hell broke loose. Why, the first person asked, do people get offended for not wanting hugs at these events? After all, isn’t it well proven that our industry is loaded with people who suffer from social disorders? Some…

    I find myself sitting in a hotel room in some random city this evening with a glass of wine, several open powerpoint decks and Family Guy on the television. A moment of reflection if ever there was one. It occurs to me that Liquidmatrix just had it’s 17th birthday in February. That is a helluva long time for a website of any description. It has been a lot of fun to see the site grow from an insanely (ugly) basic HTML site to a heavily trafficked site with multiple members either writing or podcasting. I’ve been making a lot of architectural changes to the site and now, I’m going to…

The technology has spawned a lot of cool projects, like this visual of a botnet from my former employer, The enhanced capability also leads to some truly ridiculous creations. For example, this Secure Thoughts piece on “hackers unmasked.” The writer asks, “Who are the…

  • “Amazon Dash Button” April Fools Joke actually looks useful

    James O'Malley
    31 Mar 2015 | 9:13 am
    Amazon has posted the above video showing off what it claims is called “Dash button” – a stick on device that will automatically re-order household essentials automatically. So when you run out of (say) washing up liquid, hit the button mounted on your sink and Amazon Prime will ship some more to you. The story goes that you would connect it to your phone and configure the product you want the button to order. However, with it being April 1st tomorrow, we’re about 98% certain this is an April Fools joke. Which is a damn shame as it looks like it could be genuinely…

A member of McLaren’s entry-level Sports Series family, it is the most affordable model in McLaren’s line up but will still set you back a cool £130,000! As its name suggests, peak power is 570PS (562bhp) from a mid-mounted, 3.8-litre V8 with twin turbochargers. Peak power is developed at 7,400rpm, with 443lb ft of torque from 5,000-6,500rpm.

    Without much fanfare Microsoft has today announced the Surface 3 tablet – a midrange replacement for the Surface 2, and the slightly stupider younger sibling of the business-focused Surface Pro 3. Spec-wise, the new device has a 10.8″ display (in the 3:2 aspect ratio), and is powered by a quad-core Intel Atom x7 processor. Microsoft reckons you can get 10 hours of battery life out of the device. Like the other tablets in the Surface line, there’s a combination keyboard/screen cover too – though you’ll have to buy it separately. Same goes with Microsoft’s…

    As some of you know, I've been following OLEDs for over 15 years (OLED-Info itself is over 10 years old) - and the promise of flexible displays has always been there. In fact most people believe this is the true major benefit of OLED displays.In 2013, both Samsung and LG started to produce flexible AMOLED displays. This was a watershed moment for the OLED industry - but only for people in the know. The production capacity was small, the adoption was limited and most people never heard of the G Flex, the Galaxy Round or the numerous Samsung wearable devices that used flexible OLEDs.Read more…

    According to Korean site ETNews, Samsung Display decided to re-enter the OLED TV market. The Korean display maker reportedly finds it difficult to make a profit from the competitive LCD business (some reports suggest that SDC aims to split the OLED and LCD business soon).Interestingly, the reports suggest that Samsung aims to use a WRGB architecture - like LG uses in their own OLED TVs, and unlike the direct-emission used in Samsung's small display and first-generation OLED TVs. The WRGB (white OLED with color filters and four sub pixels) was originally developed at Kodak, and then bought by…

    There’s been this perpetual tussle between those who favor using apps and those who prefer a website with responsive design or dynamic serving to promote a brand. But by now, it’s pretty clear that to truly succeed online and on mobile, businesses need to have a presence on both mobile apps as well as a full-fledged website that works equally well on desktops and mobile devices alike. Now take these two pieces of information and put them together. Retail apps took up 27% of a user’s time on a smartphone. At the same time, we see that over 50% of all purchases – online and offline…

    31 Mar 2015 | 2:05 pm
    Rajen Ruparell, the Calgary-born entrepreneur best known for founding Citydeal in Europe, which was later bought by Groupon, is already finding much success in his latest investment, Endy.

While the success of Endy is, of course, impressive as an investor in the company, Ruparell didn’t pursue being an investor just to make money. After five years of working at Groupon, where he says he wore “many hats,” including…

    31 Mar 2015 | 2:04 pm
    Ellen Pao, a former junior partner at Kleiner Perkins Caulfield & Byers, this year sued the Silicon Valley venture capital giant for gender discrimination. She lost spectacularly on all four of the suit's counts last week. A woman suing Silicon Valley for gender discrimination sounds like a great movement for equality, right? At a glance, sure. Which is why you might read in some place, such as VentureBeat, that Pao's loss was a "devastating blow" to both the technology industry and women. Quick, raise the pitchforks! Pao's loss was, in fact, only a loss for her. The technology industry…

Features like Bible reading plans, the ability to add notes, export notes, commentaries, sharing verses and so on. These are all great and we’ve seen some huge steps forward there, but sometimes I wonder if this has lead to a neglect of the design of these tools. Well NeuBible is a new (pun not intended) Bible app from a small indie development team that takes a radically different approach to many others and focuses on design first.

I bet I could spend $100,000 in the first 5 minutes.

    Thanks to the kind friends at Beamdog I’m able to up the ante for incentives to my sponsors of my 24hr game-a-thon participation in Play4Paws2 — supporting CaliCan Rescue Foundation. Butt Kicking, for Goodness! Baldur’s Gate. Baldur’s Gate II: Shadows of Amn, Icewind Dale. These games hold a special place in my heart. I was at the Edmonton Baldur’s Gate launch party when I was covering it for local TV news. Then later, when I worked for BioWare, I contributed to the marketing and communications efforts of these games and the Infinity Engine that they’re built on. At the time,…

Hmm, I think I need something more to get my friends involved. So, unlike Rene (one of…

  • Ta-Da! The Real Meaning Behind Those Vague Emoji

    31 Mar 2015 | 3:30 pm
    Rule number one of emoji: there are no rules. You can use those cute little symbols as much as you want. The only caveat is that sometimes they're a little . . . confusing. What's with the guy on his stomach, for instance? To get the meanings behind the most head-scratching characters, we looked to Emojipedia. Yes, it's a real thing, and all the names listed are official emoji character names. The meanings and descriptions, however, aren't necessarily accurate because Emojipedia isn't affiliated with the emoji makers. But it's better than nothing, right? Source: Emojipedia

    31 Mar 2015 | 2:45 pm
    Wondering just how much data you're pulling down in a given month on your iPhone? There are a few ways to check your usage, one being to head to AT&T's wireless website, log into your account, and create a billing report (under "Bills and Payments," click "Create Billing Report," and then "Data Usage Trend"), which gives you a detailed graph on how much data you're using. You can also estimate how much you use with your provider's online data calculator. Find your usage for AT&T, Verizon, or by signing in to your Sprint account. However, this third way only requires you and your…

    With this coming May earmarked for the long-anticipated launch of the European Commission’s overarching Digital Single Market strategy, now is a good moment to consider why it’s vital to get the digital single market right and what’s at stake if we don’t. It’s been suggested that, with the right support, the digital sector could grow seven times faster than overall EU GDP in years to come. Achieving a fully-functioning digital single market could translate into an additional 340 billion euro in economic growth. The incentives for this new Commission to embrace digital technologies…

But no, the White House has not hired him to run its IT department.The man taking on that job is David Recordon, a 28-years-young veteran of Facebook and open standards efforts such as OpenID.

The workforce has changed a bit over the last few decades, and college degrees aren't necessarily the best indicators of employee performance anymore. Sure, everyone still needs an education, but being able to learn on your own and pick up skills years after you've been handed a diploma are far more important than where that diploma was printed. Considering that student loans are rarely ever forgiven, people might want to choose their…
  • Subway, McDonald's And Burger King Sued Over GPS Tracking Patent... Or Something

    Vera Ranieri

    GPS technology has been around for a while. Wikipedia puts the start of development at 1973. But it wasn't until the 1990s that it became available for consumer use. And even then, it took some time before the government removed restrictions on accuracy that it had on its use by civilians. (The government had added an intentional error to the signal that made GPS variably inaccurate up to 50 meters.) With the loosening of restrictions on GPS came furious development in consumer applications—and a flurry of patents. Which brings us to this month's Stupid Patent of the Month. The dubious…

But its agencies also have fleets of (nonlethal) drones, something these agencies tend to avoid discussing until sued into doing so. The Office of the Inspector General has taken another look at the drones deployed by DOJ agencies and found that, while plenty of money has been spent acquiring and maintaining drones/operators, very little deployment is actually occurring. Our September 2013 interim report found that between 2004 and 2013, the FBI spent approximately $3 million to acquire small UAS it…
  • Ross Ulbricht's Lawyers Were Told About Corrupt Investigators, But Barred From Using That During His Trial

    Mike Masnick
    31 Mar 2015 | 1:33 pm
    We already wrote about Monday's unsealed criminal complaint against two government agents who were key players in investigating Silk Road -- but who used that position to steal Bitcoins and a lot of other questionable behavior. Now it comes out that the Justice Department revealed the existence of this investigation to Ross Ulbricht's lawyers five weeks before Ulbricht's trial -- but then blocked Ulbricht's legal team from using that information, even as the Justice Department continued to rely on evidence from both of the apparently corrupt federal agents. Ulbricht's lawyer, Joshua Dratel,…

    People (especially those in the news media) love to talk about Anonymous, often making bold, sweeping and generally inaccurate proclamations about the group's nature and goals. Gabriella Coleman, on the other hand, has spent years closely studying and engaging with Anonymous in the real world, and developing a nuanced understanding of the nebulous phenomenon. Her new book Hacker, Hoaxer, Whistleblower, Spy: The Many Faces of Anonymous provides insider details about Anonymous that you won't find anywhere else, and she joins us to discuss it on this week's episode.

    21 Mar 2015 | 7:17 pm
    I’ve been playing around with music again. For my birthday, I ordered Teenage Engineering’s Factory OP-16 synth, which has been fun to tinker with. Here’s a quick series of patterns I slammed together into a track on it: I’ve been trying to get it to play nicely with my Kaossilator 2, but they don’t sync, so it’s all upon my impeccable timing to get them totally aligned, which is a little difficult. In addition to this little bit of tinkering fun, a few weeks back, some coworkers and myself rented out some studio space and jammed for 3 hours. It was so much…

Weblogs, Inc. was built upon the success of Engadget. Engadget was a blogging machine built by Brian Alvey, Jason Calacanis, and Peter Rojas after Jason successfully persuaded Peter to jump ship from Gizmodo and build a better Gizmodo. The audience followed Peter’s star power as an established gadget and technology blogger, Engadget started out-scooping Gizmodo, and it was a success.

  • Ditched my Cintiq Companion and upgraded my Surface Pro 3

    So yesterday, I went to the Microsoft Store at the Domain, and traded in my just under a month old i5 128GB Surface Pro 3 for the top of the line i7 500GB model. I did this with funds I made from selling my Cintiq Companion this past week on Amazon Marketplace for ~$78 more net profit than I originally paid for it (thanks to getting it this summer when Wacom was running a summer ~$500 off sale + Cintiq Companion’s being hard to come by currently while everyone awaits the release of the newly announced Cintiq Companion 2).

    I’ve had advertisements on this site forever. I just removed them. There’s no point. In any case, if you like the things I tend to write and do and you want to motivate me to keep doing these things / do them more often, I set up a Patreon page where you can become a patron. Although, I must say, although I like the idea behind Patreon, I don’t like the execution much. It’s very inflexible. Why can’t I set up different types of patronage for different endeavors at different price points? Why is everything either recurring by month or recurring by thing created?

Kristin asked me if I felt older on the way to church this morning, and my reply was, “I feel like I’m learning new things recently.” This is my first birthday without a dad and it’s about 6 months since he passed. I was struck oddly today by the lack of him calling me up to sing the silly penny song that he’s sung to me every birthday that I can remember (counting pennies you receive for each year behind you).

Since its launch in 2012 the Raspberry Pi has exceeded expectations, becoming a must-have piece of computer hardware for enthusiasts and tech-heads.

  • Dyson Rolls Out their First Air Purifier

    Chance Kinney
    31 Mar 2015 | 1:37 pm
    With hotter weather on its way in the northern hemisphere, Dyson is looking to keep things cool with a new fan that doubles as an air purifier, because the only thing nastier than hot air is polluted hot air. The Dyson Pure Cool is a bladeless fan similar in form to their Hot + Cool fans, but only has the Cool part. It won’t help you much in the winter, then, but it could be a lifesaver during the summer in more ways than one. The Pure Cool has a built-in air purifier that uses a 360-degree glass HEPA filter and a DC motor to hit you with a blast of fresh, clean air. The filter can…

    If you already have an HDTV antenna that you use to pick up over-the-air network television, you’ve already taken one step towards getting out of paying for cable. But, when you use that antenna, you have to switch input modes on your television if, say, you have a set-top box like Roku that you use to get streaming online media. Mohu Channels is a new kind of set-top box that promises to simplify things. Mohu Channels still requires the use of a separate HDTV antenna, but it includes all the OTA channels you pick up in one comprehensive channel guide that also includes the streaming…

    Allow them to reintroduce themselves—now owned by Hov, Tidal is looking to go from low-key high-quality streaming music service to a major Spotify competitor. And, as dull as it is to have to drag out the phrase “Spotify competitor” again, there’s good reason this time—Tidal, in its current form, could represent the first major push by artists to own music distribution outright. Some artists, anyway. Tidal itself comes from humble enough beginnings. Tidal hails from Spotify’s Scandinavian neighbor, the result of a collaboration between Aspiro AS and a chain of…

Today, they’re announcing the latest version of that stylus, with an improved battery and more faithful rendering of your scrawling—er, handwriting. The original Jot Script was a welcome sight in the stylus world. The stylus was one of the first for iOS devices that featured a pen-sized nib, instead of a larger, less-precise rubber tip.

    31 Mar 2015 | 2:26 pm
    Google has unveiled a whole lot of new Chrome OS devices today - mostly laptops - but there's also a small Chromecast-like dongle that you can slip into any HDMI port and turn that display into a full-on Chrome OS machine. It's only $99, which puts it right into impulse-buy territory. One of the laptops is a convertible with a touchscreen, which seems odd at first because Chrome OS isn't really built with touch in mind. It starts to make more sense, however, when you combine with the news that Google is opening up the App Runtime for Chrome to all Android developers, allowing them to get…

I was genuinely excited when I read about this Surface 3. I actually really like the Surface concept, but the Surface Pro 3 is simply too powerful (and thus, too expensive) for my specific workload (minor translation work, proofreading, watching some videos, some browsing, that sort of…

And it's something Samsung has chosen - or been forced - to contend with. The Galaxy S6 is the first time I've felt like Samsung might finally be grappling with the idea of what a smartphone ought to be on an ontological level. No, the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge don't fully tick off every single box in that checklist. But they've done something better: become phones that are more than the collection of their parts.

That's right, this means that today's release includes the new Project Spartan browser and you'll get to use it for the first time on PCs as it begins to show up across the Windows 10 device family.

    30 Mar 2015 | 2:19 pm

Mike Lee, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary's Antitrust Subcommittee, plans to contact the Federal Trade Commission, Google, and other online companies to discuss the issue, Emily Long, a spokeswoman for the Utah Republican, said Monday. The subcommittee has no plans yet to hold a hearing on the issue, she said. If this is a genuine inquiry - and not just party politics, Democrats vs. Republicans or vice versa - then…

What results is something that using the term one rarely hears except to describe humor on April Fools Day: ham-handed. The saddest example of this was in the early days of TechCrunch when each year, the day would start with some news item about one company purchasing another company for some reason that made no sense.

Years ago, while Marissa Mayer was still at Google, an article appeared in the New York Times about the way she tested 41 shades of blue to decide which to use in a navigation bar. Many people still use that as a benchmark for the lengths a marketer should go to make sure something works. But there’s a “rest of the story” to the 41 shades test, as shared by Douglas Bowman, Google’s first visual designer. When he left Google to become…

While I was scratched and bruised, the major injuries were invisible: a concussion that wiped out a couple of hours of my memory and what turned out to be–although I didn’t realize it until a couple of months of denial–a chipped-off bone in my left hand that required surgery and a wire that’s still inside my left ring finger.

That means if you come across an interesting video on Facebook, you can easily put it on your blog without having to direct your audience to the Facebook website. There are two important points to consider though. One, you should only embed videos that are public. Facebook does provide the embed code for private videos that are shared with you or your network but your audience won’t be able to play these videos on your website. The other issue is that Facebook still uses the Adobe Flash player…

    As revolutions go, the rise of mobile gaming has been a quiet one. In just a few short years the mobile gaming sphere went from being a tiny slice of the worldwide gaming market to a fairly substantial piece of the pie. Today, it’s poised to overtake the console industry in the worldwide market and to become gaming’s largest segment by the end of 2015. It’s no surprise that some are wondering how mobile came to dominate the 90 billion dollar gaming industry – particularly when “gamer” is still an epithet that conjures up images of a relatively limited…

         I’m headed back to Atlanta from Amsterdam today. The flight time is just over 9 hours. I did my usual downloads from my TiVo DVR the night before so that I would have some shows to watch and of course I have my MacBook Pro so that I can get some writing done. The last thing I expected on this Delta flight was to have WiFi internet all the way home! Sure I get my hopes up each time I board an international flight by looking for the familiar WiFi stickers found on 99% of all Delta domestic flights and like always there were no stickers present on this flight. However,…

  • Netflix vs. Hulu Plus: If you could only have one?

    Terry White
    18 Mar 2015 | 1:04 pm
    I’ve been a Netflix subscriber for years and I have also tried a trial subscription to Hulu Plus. The thing that turned me off of Hulu (and still does) is that you pay the monthly fee ($7.99) and yet they still play ads. Also not to mention that during my trial period all the ads were bought out by the presidential candidates of 2012. I just couldn’t take any more. Three years later I’m willing to try Hulu Plus again, but is it worth it? I’d gladly pay more per month to eliminate the ads. Many of you have Hulu, Netflix or both. Tell me why? What if you could only have…

    WiFi connected webcams are nothing new. When someone enters this category I quickly look to see if they’re adding anything new or if it’s just a me too product. In most cases there isn’t a whole lot that’s new, but companies do sometimes find a way to improve on an already crowded product category. The Simplicam + Closeli is a standard WiFi connected webcam with a nicer design than most. It has a well thought out base/stand as well as things like a 10 foot “flat” USB cable so that you can more easily hide it in your home. This camera can be monitored from…

    Yesterday when Apple announced the new MacBook I was mildly interested. After all my 2nd computer is a MacBook Air. I’m always attracted to electronics that are thinner and lighter in weight. However, as they started to reveal the specs I quickly began to realize that this wasn’t going to be a product for me. I also had to remind some of my friends that not every product created is for every user. This is why Apple now has three different products in their notebook lineup (MacBook, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro). I’m mostly a pro user and this is NOT a pro machine. Could it be…

    Amy Schumer and Bill Hader star in the upcoming comedy Trainwreck–which Schumer wrote–and seem confident that the film, with Judd Apatow at the helm, will be a success. However, both of them were somewhat surprised when Apatow first championed them for the lead roles. Schumer, who has been touring quite a bit since her appearance on Last Comic Standing in 2007, is also the star of her own sketch show on Comedy Central and has made a pretty big name for herself in Hollywood. But that doesn’t mean she felt she was ready to carry a film, even one she penned; as she says, she…

It is hard to believe that it has been 20 years since Selena Quintanilla was shot and killed by Yolanda Saldivar, who was the president of her fan club. Selena Quintanilla and Saldivar got into a fight over allegations that Saldivar was embezzling money from the fan club and fashion boutiques. After the argument, Saldivar shot Selena, severing an artery. Selena Quintanilla ran to escape Saldivar, but she collapsed in the hotel lobby after losing a lot of blood and later died.

    Xiaomi Redmi 1S was an amazing entry-level phone (discontinued now), and its successor ‘Redmi 2‘ has been recently launched in India. Out of 8GB, around 6GB of free space is available for the users on Redmi 1S which is pretty decent. But once you install 2-3 high-end games on your device, the internal storage can easily run out and unfortunately there is no option to move apps to SD card neither on Redmi 1S nor Redmi 2. Moreover, there is no way to install apps directly on SD card in Redmi 1S. Luckily, a not so complex workaround is available that helps you move the compatible…
  • Xiaomi Redmi 2 Review – Colorful Entry-Level Champ powered by 4G

    22 Mar 2015 | 5:08 am
    Xiaomi is on a roll when it comes to 4G phones in India, becoming the # 1 in terms of shipments of 4G smartphones in India trouncing Samsung and Apple – this is no small accomplishment especially after all the controversies they got into in India. All of this is in less than a year they’ve come to India starting off with the Mi 3 which was a huge hit. They are also the number five in the Indian smartphone market in Q4 of 2014 with about 4 percent market share. Coming off a not so successful sales period of the Mi 4, Xiaomi looks to be back in the game of sales numbers now with…
  • Moto E (2015) Review – A pretty ‘Basic’ deal, with unpredictable performance drops

    Cosmic Paladin
    21 Mar 2015 | 5:58 am
    E for ‘economy‘ is what Motorola has aimed for with the Moto E that was introduced in 2014 and we need not ring a bell here on how successful it was in terms of changing trends, breaking records in sales and all the good things. Who would’ve thought a tiny entry-level phone packing decent specs that can get you thru the day with telephony, housing the elusive vanilla Android OS would come at that price! And within a year of its release, Motorola wants to leverage on the success – in the form of Moto E (2nd Generation). Does it churn the game at the entry level…

  • Notes From The Road: Apple Watch, Apple Car

    Jean-Louis Gassée
    29 Mar 2015 | 10:28 am
       by Jean-Louis Gassée Taking a closer look at the size and precision of Apple’s manufacturing operations has made me rethink my skepticism about the putative Apple Car. I’ve been in Paris for the last two weeks, mostly disconnected. I won’t wallow in specifics; suffice it to say that the struggle with cable TV, Internet, and cellular providers here is eerily similar to what we commonly endure in the Valley. There is one difference, however: A few hours ago, I watched as a cable technician spliced a fiber connection into our apartment, something I can’t get in downtown Palo…
  • Beware of Airbnb entering the hyperlocal travel guide business

    Frédéric Filloux
    22 Mar 2015 | 12:31 pm
      by Frédéric Filloux  Airbnb has every reason to enter the news services sector – and to threaten a broad range of media/services such as Trip Advisor or Yelp.  Seen through the eyes of travel information publishers, Airbnb holds a dream position: a huge base of 25 million potential readers/users, spread over 34,000 cities in 190 countries, well in tune with the brand’s core product and attributes. For a start, should Airbnb develop a publishing arm, this unparalleled notoriety would spare it tens of millions dollars otherwise required to promote its content services: In the…
  • News Media Should Drop Native Apps

    Frédéric Filloux
    15 Mar 2015 | 12:19 pm
      by Frédéric Filloux When it comes to the most basic form of news delivery, facts keep piling up in a way that makes native apps more and more questionable. Here is why it’s worth considering a move back to mobile sites or web apps…   One of the most shared statistic on mobile use is this one: Applications account for 86% of the time spend b’y users. This leaves a mere 14% for browser-based activities, i.e. sites designed for mobile, either especially coded for nomad consumption, built using responsive design techniques that adapt look and feel to screen size, or…
  • After The First 3 Million AppleWatches

    Jean-Louis Gassée
    8 Mar 2015 | 11:54 am
      By Jean-Louis Gassée We’ll soon know what the AppleWatch is and what it can do…it may take a while to understand why Apple has gone to such lengths to hype the device. Under Steve Jobs‘ leadership, Apple 2.0 obsessed over the marriage of form and function. Starting with Jony Ive’s Bondi Blue iMac, Apple products stood out in a sea of beige and black boxes. But even so, fashion, the providential spawn of this fecund marriage, has always been a by-product — welcome, but not a first-order pursuit With the AppleWatch things have changed: Fashion is now a primary component,…

      by Frédéric Filloux My last column about new valuations in digital media triggered an abundance of comments. Here are my responses and additions to the discussion.  The most revealing part of argument used by those who tweeted (800 of them), commented or emailed me, is how many wished things to remain simple and segregated: legacy vs. native media, content producers vs. service providers, ancestral performances indicators and, of course, the self-granted permission to a certain category of people to decide what is worthy. Too bad for cartesian minds and simplifiers, the digital…

    Sharing the display of your smartphone can be tricky. While there are some Android devices that support HDMI, the best option for smartphone owners on all platforms is usually to employ some screen-mirroring software (particularly straightforward for iOS users) and view the current app on a HDTV or monitor. There is another way though, and that is to project your display. Setting your mobile device up with a digital projector is simple enough, but you also have the option of turning your phone’s screen into a projector. Yes, you read that right.

So much so, in fact, that my father-in-law installed a self-built six foot long bookcase in our house shortly after we moved in, and even that wasn’t enough to deal with the vast collection of novels, guides, encyclopaedias and biographies that I owned. My wife brought a few into the mix too, as did my children when they arrived. My office has four sets of shelves, with the one internal wall creaking under the weight of a one-man library, and corners and the over-door space also dedicated to literature.

    Our smartphones are more than capable of keeping track of our daily schedules, and our desktops make it simple to stay on top of tasks. It’s not enough that this capability comes included out of the box — there is an overabundance of third-party alternatives. Nevertheless, you can still see paper planners lined up on store shelves. And you know what? It’s not just the old or computerless who are buying them. There are practical reasons to prefer a physical product over a digital solution, even if thinking of them can leave some of us scratching our heads. Why Even...Read the…

    Law firms have always had this reputation for being kind of boring and stodgy. This is the same image that most people tend to see when they visit law firm websites as well. It really is a shame that most law firm websites on the net perpetuate this kind of image because no website needs to be boring even if it does belong to something as serious as a law firm.

    Sans the plot itself, possibly the most rousing effect of Dan Brown’s Angels and Demons is its mark in the world of ambigrams. The “Illuminati” ambigram in the book (and movie) launched thousands of online searches about the nature of the design. The great thing about this typographical creation is its cool factor. You can’t see an ambigram design and not think of it as “cool” or “awesome.” Because it is. When you can read word/s the same way upside down, or in any orientation or POV, it’s remarkable. It’s genius. Not only is the structure of the design impressive, an…

    Generally, critical care refers to the direct delivery of medical care for a seriously ill or injured patient. An illness or injury to be considered critical must seriously impair one or more vital organs of the patient so that their survival rate is put at risk. This requires detailed interpretation of multiple data sources along with the application of advanced technology to manage the patient. Therefore, critical medical support requires frequent personal assessment and manipulation by a trained practitioner. As per 2012 statistics, there are approximately 6000 ICUs in the United States,…

    Colorectal Cancer (CRC) is recognized as the third most commonly diagnosed malignant neoplasm worldwide and the third leading cause of cancer death in both men and women in the United States. It is estimated that there will be 135,000 new cases of CRC and nearly 50,000 deaths due to this disease in the United States in 2015. Generally, colorectal cancer develops in the colon or the rectum. Reports suggest that the lifetime risk of developing this condition is about 1 in 20 (5%) and this is somewhat higher in men than women. The potential risk factors associated with this disease include…
  • Is ACA Failing to Provide Dental Coverage for Kids?

    Julie Clements
    20 Mar 2015 | 3:02 am
    Dental coverage is a must for kids as it is necessary for them to visit dentists periodically since even a small cavity may lead to big health problems later. Though most children get coverage through their parents’ employer-based health insurance or the government-funded Children’s Health Insurance Program and Medicaid (CHIP), the American Dental Association says that around 10 million children aged 2 through 18 had no dental insurance in 2011. In order to help people not eligible for Medicaid and having no workplace coverage, health insurance marketplaces were opened last year.

    31 Mar 2015 | 8:28 am
    Microsoft just unveiled the latest version of its baseline Surface tablet, the Surface 3 — switching to an Intel Atom processor, and leaving behind the ARM-based processors that powered the first two versions. The change means that the new tablet runs a full version of Windows 8.1 and traditional Windows apps, not the Windows RT operating system, which was limited to Modern UI apps. The Surface 3, starting at $499, comes with a 10.8 inch screen, slightly smaller than the 12-inch Surface Pro 3 introduced by Microsoft last year. It comes in 64 GB and 128 GB models, and 4G LTE...

    Dear Sam, The previous team that was managing licenses for my company was just let go.  I’ve been put in charge of the new team and my first action was to remove general access to the corporate shared disk location everyone was using to install software.  I did this because the CFO of the company told me to lock down the ability for anyone to install software without being able to track and approve each and every installation.

  • OS Deployment Made Easy: Serve Yourself!

    Background Any organization that goes through the process of developing and deploying a new operating system knows a simple truth: coordinating with the end users around scheduling the OS deployment is one of the most challenging tasks in the entire project plan. There never seems to be a “good” time to actually fire off the deployment you spent so much time and effort to get “just right”.  There are of course a boatload of reasons why this is true, but fundamentally it comes down to people. For every computer you need to upgrade, there is a human being on the other side of the…

    So – we’ve created a new acronym for Software Asset Management (SAM) in 1E. We’re calling it SAO – Software Asset Optimization. Why yet another acronym? And why “Software Asset Optimization”? Because ITAM and SAM have always, to some degree, frustrated me. It is crucial to manage your IT Assets (which is the stated aim of ITAM and as a subset – SAM). Often ITAM and SAM tools vendors equate “manage” with “count” – that’s just not good enough. 1E is not developing a new suite of tools which merely count installs or licenses – SAO is about active optimization –…

Those special releases are made specifically for Joomla developers to use to both test the changes in the upcoming release AND to check that their own code is still working as intended. Despite this after every release we see the same extension and template developers wait until AFTER the release before they even look at the code and test their own work. Then they are in a mad panic and rush to release updates. Meanwhile…

To be fair, the guy grew up in an Internet world, with access to online resources including Facebook, Twitter, and other social applications.

For IT managers a good, simple definition for RISK may be from the Open FAIR model which states: “Risk is defined as the probable frequency and magnitude of future loss”   Risk management should follow a structured process acknowledging…

  • Avoiding Enterprise Mobile Management: A Futile Exercise in Procrastination

    Steve Brasen
    30 Mar 2015 | 8:38 am
    IT operations managers are cringing all around the world – desperately trying to avoid those inevitable words from their executive management: “You need to support enterprise mobility.” Their concerns are understandable. After all, IT administrators are already overtaxed with supporting desktop, server, application, and infrastructure management requirements. Asking them to layer a whole new management discipline on top of that can be a daunting prospect. IT managers who find themselves in this predicament often recognize it as an opportunity to practice the fine art of procrastination.

Certain business cultures feel that these activities are an invasion of privacy or are distrustful. However, in today’s Internet connected, data driven world, having specific information or data means the difference in being a market leader and being out of business.

    Since the advent of Web 2.0, social interaction is king. Now, almost every single mobile app works in the environment of its users exchanging ideas through content authoring, comments, likes and shares. Even the simplest and most “personal” of them, like personal planners, address books and to-do lists, enable users to put their data in the cloud, share them with others and access them using a myriad of devices and interfaces. The bottom line is that every one of them needs a back-end and an API to talk to. All projects are executed through tight cooperation between back-end…

  • Poland? I can see some changes for the better

    Peter Horsten
    30 Jan 2015 | 7:58 am
    How do you like Poland? What do you think about Polish people? – these are the questions any foreigner living in Poland or staying here for a while has to answer, sooner or later. What do I, a Dutchman living in Gdańsk, think about Poland? Some weeks ago I was interviewed by, one of the leading news papers in Poland. This post is a translation of the original article which can be found here. Ewa Karendys: You moved to Gdańsk due to your wife, who is Polish. How did you first meet? Peter Horsten: I came to Gdańsk in April 1995 for a week-long trip organised by the faculty I…
  • Is it time to open your own online store?

    Peter Horsten
    31 Oct 2014 | 12:03 pm
    You might have started selling online through a market place like Amazon, Etsy, eBay, Cqout or your local favorite like DaWanda in Germany, Marktplaats in The Netherlands or Allegro in Poland. Hopefully, your business is growing and if things go well you will soon need your own platform. Increasingly you will face the relatively high costs of the platform you use, but more important is the fact it doesn’t allow you to grow and stand out from the crowd. It might be high time to have your own branded store to really engage with your customers. So, how do you know when it’s time to take…

  • Top 10 Books to Un-Borg

    I have been thinking of doing this for a long time. Actually I plan to extend it to 100 books that I think are a good foundation for anyone to read in order to have a more rounded, more able, and most of all a more independent way of thinking than just unconsciously going along with the greater reactive biomass that is carefully being shaped by TV and other mass media, including this here Internet. Just to be clear then, my criteria for whether a book makes it into my top 100 is primarily based on the practical, real effect it has on you awakening from the dreary, matrix-like slumber induced…

  • Why Hybrid IT Services Might Be Just What Your Small Business Needs

    Alex Espenson

    When running your small business, you probably hear all the time about moving over to big data and shifting everything over to the cloud as it is easier for you to run and operate. Now, it might be true that just dumping everything you have over to the cloud is easy, but there are are right and wrong ways to approach business process management (BPM). Instead, you need to look at a hybrid IT service. There are many benefits associated with spreading your data around and not having everyone in one place.

    U.S. Telecom has announced that it has filed suit against the United States government in response to the recent ruling by the Federal Communications Commission on Net Neutrality. The suit was filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. The lawsuit comes after the FCC passed a law to prevent network owners, such as Comcast (CMCSA) and Time Warner Cable (TWC), from discriminating against certain content being sent over its networks. The rules will not take effect for 60 days until after they are published to the Federal Register, if they are not delayed in court.

    Jason Brown
    30 Mar 2015 | 1:45 pm
    In most mature categories, there’s a common pattern: there are pretty clear Tier 1 and Tier 2 companies, and there are worrisome smaller players. Worrisome because they have an edge – the benefit of not being all things to all people – or because they do something that the top players just can’t seem to get done. These are the grounds for the archetypal battle for growth in American commerce. If you are Tier 1, the battle plan is finding new markets and fending off number 2. If you are Tier 2, the battle plan is being a challenger brand and fending off the nips at your heels without…

    Paul Crowe

    In my last article, I shared some R&D conducted by Ipsos on how consumers consume concepts. The results indicated that consumers typically do not consume traditional concepts in a linear fashion: they almost always start with the image and then the headline, moving to the insight and then price (typically at the bottom of the concept) and then moving on to the body of the concept. This result was striking, but also not very surprising. After all, as an industry we typically expose consumers to the entire concept all at once – essentially letting them consume the concept in any order…

As such, many marketers are building their own innovation villages in the form of online communities to help them through the process of nurturing their innovation from infancy to the marketplace.

  • Thoughts on Apple Pay

    3 Feb 2015 | 5:53 pm
    Apple Pay is a revolutionary payment system. I have used it a couple of times since it has launched and just love the way it has been implemented. It works just as it was shown in the keynote. You basically bring your iPhone close to the payment terminal which is waiting for payment and your cards stored in the passbook will automagically appear on your screen. If you have your finger already on the Touch ID, it would just go ahead and authorize the payment with your default card. The little chime and a subtle vibration in addition to the short animation on the screen let you know that the…

    If your site isn’t optimized for mobile users, expect to see a major drop in site traffic starting this April. Google just announced two major changes to how content will rank in mobile searches. This has been an ongoing quest of Google’s for some time, as mobile makes up an ever increasing percentage of searches. The newly announced algorithm changes go farther than any before them, however.

  • Google Just Added Live Chat to Search Results

    3 Mar 2015 | 2:19 pm
    Calling a business has never been fun. Between waiting for someone to pick up, wondering if you’ll be stuck on hold, dealing with automated menus, and finally getting a live person only to find out they can’t answer your question, what should be a two minute proposition often takes more like 20. And in the age of text messaging, even two minutes isn’t short. Hold music may be a thing of the past, however. Google appears to be working on taking the phone call out of contacting your local business, or at least giving you the option to use an online chat function instead.
  • Class Action Lawsuit Against Google Thrown Out

    2 Mar 2015 | 8:41 am
    If Google requires mobile device makers to use it as their default search engine, does it have an unfair monopoly on the market? The answer is no, according to a decision last week by a US District Court judge. Or rather—to be more accurate–the judge decided there’s no proof the search engine’s practices have caused harm. What’s in a MADA? The case started with Google’s MADA, or Mobile Application Distribution Agreement. This is the set of terms and conditions it requires of hardware manufacturers making devices that use the Android operating system.

  • Apple could sell 1 million watches opening weekend, and barely move the needle on Apple's revenue (AAPL)

    Matt Rosoff
    31 Mar 2015 | 5:25 pm
    Apple will sell over one million Apple Watches over the opening weekend, according to Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster. By way of comparison, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus sold over 10 million units in their first three days on the market last September, Apple says. Here's his reasoning:  1 million total Watch units in opening weekend would imply an attach rate of less than 1% of total iPhone users (close to half a percent). We believe given interest in the product and our prior survey work, a sub 1% attach rate in the opening weekend is realistic. Munster expects 300,000 watches to sell in…

    One of the most novel and equally controversial provisions of the Revised Student Election Code of DLSU-D is the provision concerning electronic forms of election propaganda. Background Yours truly was part of the body that assembled to revise the old Student Election Code of DLSU-D back in 2008. Considering my background in social media publishing, aka I’m a blogger, and my previous experience in being Chair of the 2007 Students’ Constitutional Convention that drafted the 2008 USC Constitution, the body appointed me to draft the provisions concerning electronic forms of…

  • Video: How NOT To Exhibit At Tech Events

    Hilary Jansen
    24 Mar 2015 | 11:47 am
    UBM marketers started a list of things to avoid when exhibiting at a show after a series of discussions with sales representatives. Often, the marketing managers will book the show and exhibitor space, and the sales team will man the booth onsite. The sales team, however, may not necessarily know how to work a booth, and often you’ll see staff on their laptop or phones, or having a chat with colleagues, and miss the attendees coming to see them. The sales team then sends feedback to their marketing manager that the show wasn’t any good. Or worse, marketers will…

    23 Mar 2015 | 11:38 am
    If seeing is believing, then video is an obvious must-have for any content marketing strategy. Videos give a voice to your executives, reinforce the humanity behind your brand, and bring your solutions to life in a way that words on a page (or screen) can’t quite match. That’s why 76% of those surveyed by the Content Marketing Institute and Marketing Profs use video as part of their content marketing strategy. In fact, B2B marketers consider video the third most effective of the many tactics they use. But with everyone from the teen around the corner to the marketer in the next building…

    The growth of online and offline communication channels has placed companies under a public microscope, and as a result consumers are more fickle about the brands they choose to support. Media fragmentation and information overload has made it much more difficult for communicators to single-handedly keep track of all the information that is publicly available about their brands. Investing in the right tools to monitor a brand’s performance not only prepares that company in advance of a crisis, but can also identify new opportunities for growth. “Now, more than ever, you have the ability…

    When it comes to storytelling, visuals have an advantage that text does not: speed. The brain processes visuals 60,000 times faster than text. HubSpot found that tweets with images are 94% more likely to be retweeted than tweets without. One of the most effective ways to present information and data today are the use of infographics.

One of the biggest misconceptions is that all Windows updates can be installed at once by simply deleting the SoftwareDistribution folder stored in C:\Windows. This is completely wrong.

    In an earlier tutorial, we have shown you how you can reveal the hidden files in Mac OS X, via the terminal. For those who need to access the hidden files frequently, but hate to use the terminal every time to toggle the visibility of the files, how about setting a keyboard shortcut so you can quickly reveal hidden files with a single press of a key?To make this work, we have to create a service (in Automator) to run the command and then assign a shortcut for this service.Note: The following method is tested and working on Mac OS X Yosemite.

    One of the options for switching programs in Mac is using the “Command + Tab.” Doing this brings up the icons of the apps currently running on your Mac, and you can select which one to switch to. It’s quite a handy feature that is often overlooked by many Mac users.You can also do similar switching directly in the Dock. Although the Dock is primarily made to be accessed by a mouse, Apple also supports accessing it using your keyboard.The default option to do this is by pressing “Control + F3″ (Control + Fn + F3) on your keyboard, but you can also change this…

It breaks the usual data capacities of pendrives to offer a whooping 256GB pendrive. As time grows, so does the amount of data we need to carry with us.

    You don't always have to be serious to be a successful academic. Flickr/kennysarmy, CC BY-NC-NDAcademics and universities are in a race: to produce high impact publications, to gain citations, bring in grant income and climb university rankings. In this rat race, perhaps the true path to academic success gets lost. Good science and academic success often require good humour.

    Mountains of data are being collected on you, and much of it is beyond your grasp. kris krüg/Flickr, CC BY-NC-NDWith the Senate passing the Federal Government’s data retention bill last week, there has been a great deal of discussion of “metadata”, what it is and whether the government ought to have access to it.

  • Be prepared for the shortest total lunar eclipse of the century

    Tanya Hill, Honorary Fellow of the University of Melbourne and Senior Curator (Astronomy) at Museum Victoria
    30 Mar 2015 | 11:06 pm
    A total lunar eclipse will be visible from across all Australia this Saturday, April 4. But it will be a quick one. Rather than passing deep into the Earth’s shadow, the moon is skimming close to the shadow’s edge, as seen in this animation. The period of totality, when the moon is fully enclosed in the Earth’s umbral shadow, will last just five minutes or so. This makes it the shortest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century. In fact, this eclipse has the shortest period of totality for almost 500 years. Back in 1529, on October 17, there was an eclipse where totality lasted for just 1…

    30 Mar 2015 | 8:01 pm
    A lifejacket won't save your life if you are not wearing it, says NSW Martime. But any accident investigation needs to ask more than just why a lifejacket was not being worn. Flickr/NSW Maritime, CC BY-NC-NDAccidents, as we all know, happen. But unfortunately, the traditional approach to accident investigation is still blighted by root cause thinking. That’s despite the fact that it is now well known that there is never one thing wholly responsible for an accident. There is no root cause. Accidents are caused by multiple interacting factors, and often even normal, commonly accepted…

But we can also lay claim to something a little more esoteric – we actually invented a whole new word. And no, we’re not talking about one of these new-fangled internet words like “YOLO”, “selfie” or “totes”. The word is “petrichor”, and it’s used to describe the distinct scent of rain in the air.

    If my calendar showed April Fools' Day instead of March 31st, I would think the big Google announcement was a joke: $149 Chromebooks, with one model available from Walmart? I know some of these laptops sell for $199. But $50 less and models from Haier and Hisense? Meanwhile, ASUS will, in summer, start selling something for even less: Chromebit, a $100 candy-bar size carry-all computer. Plug it into a HDMI-compatible display (like your TV), and your Chromie lifestyle is even-more mobile. The company also will release Chromebook Flip, a tablet-convertible wannabe, sooner.

But of course Facebook is not just filled with photos of food -- there are also photos of kids, presenting an image of family life.

Plus, slippery roads and walkways make both driving and walking potentially risky activities. Injuries aside, the last thing you want to experience in a snowstorm, however, is being stranded. If your car battery dies, a pair of jumper cables can save the day, but only if another motorist drives by and is willing to help. Today, Cyntur announces the JumperPack mini.

    MacBook users have enjoyed the benefits of MagSafe connector which allows for swift connection without fumbling and also, the magnetic connector ensures the cable won’t break or your device won’t get pulled along with you when you forgot to disconnect it. Won’t it be nice if such benefits were to be made available to things like, say, headphones? I mean, we will definitely love the convenience and to end the prospect of accidental diving devices because we failed to disconnect the cable before standing up and moving away. While the industry won’t be implementing such connivence…

    A watch company makes timepieces. There is really nothing wrong with that, isn’t it? Except that Analog Watch Co. not only makes beautiful, wood-based timepieces, it now also has one that won’t keep time. Appropriately called Ant Watch, it has no minute or second hands and there is no complication either; all it has within that watch case is a super tiny ant colony. Well, if you can even call 3 to 5 ants a colony at all. We read that the watch-like case is no ordinary case. It is in fact of specially designed shake resistant nesting material. As strange as it might sounds, this is a real…

  • Dangerous glass fibers in cigarettes worsen lung damage for smokers

    19 Jan 2015 | 7:58 pm
    Shocking new research reveals that a specific type of lung cancer many smokers develop comes from tiny tears in their lung tissue caused by microscopic glass fibers, also known as glass wool, found in many conventional cigarette filters. These rips in the epithelial (soft) tissue fuel the development of tumors and cancerous cells due to the constant overload of toxins, namely pesticides, nicotine and ammonia, contained in commercial cigarette smoke. The filters of typical commercial cigarettes contain microscopic, needle-shaped shards of glass wool (like fiberglass insulation) which escape…

    I haven’t been able to really do a proper mani for a couple of weeks until today. I actually sat down and gave myself a much needed manicure, fresh coat of paint and a simple nailart design perfect for Easter and spring.

After recently sailing on the Carnival Triumph I wanted to share 5 items that I packed that I could not have lived without.

We did not have a primary insurance policy, only a supplemental dependent life insurance policy for $10,000.00. I contacted them so fast because someone made me aware that most insurance policies exclude suicide no matter the reason. I read the policy and was totally confused by the wording. After talking to several people for over an hour, the only answer I received was that it was excluded, however to file a claim anyways and see what happens. After receiving this…

    An unusual and very exciting form of carbon – that can be created by drawing on paper-looks to hold the key to real-time, high throughput DNA sequencing, a technique that would revolutionise medical research and testing. This study is published in Nature Communications. The Australian researchers have shown that graphene -a one-atom thick sheet of hexagonally arranged carbon, shaped like chicken wire -can detect the four nucleobases that make up DNA (cytosine, guanine, adenine and thymine). A unique combination of the four nucleobases makes up the individual DNA sequence of a gene.

  • But What About the Hole?

    Joe Kinsella
    29 Mar 2015 | 9:50 am
    I've been reading Brent Schlender's Becoming Steve Jobs this weekend, which is being promoted as the "real story" of the Apple CEO. There is no doubt Walter Isaacson didn't make too many Apple friends with his Steve Jobs biography, which portrayed Jobs as a sort of brilliant but high functioning sociopath. I'll post a review when I'm done but felt the need to pass on this anecdote. The spring after the 1996 acquisition of NeXT, Larry Ellison saw the then Apple CEO, Gil Amelio, at a party and introduced him to Gina Smith, a technology journalist. By this time Steve Jobs had concluded Amelio…
  • The First Stand-up

    Joe Kinsella
    28 Mar 2015 | 8:51 am
    Every day across the tech industry, teams gather for daily stand-up meetings. While the structure varies by organization, the intent is the same: to provide status and identify blocking issues. While I have attended many stand-ups over the years, I have an odd footnote in my personal history: I was at the very first stand-up. The location was 25 Corporate Drive in Burlington, Massachusetts (current headquarters of Acquia), and the year was 1992 or 1993. I was a fresh-faced college graduate who had recently transferred to a small software team in Easel Corporation to join two talented…
  • Using Trello for Hiring

    Joe Kinsella
    27 Mar 2015 | 4:38 am
    Early in CloudHealth I used Trello as a quick and easy way to manage my time. Having a visual board gave me a sense of order that helped better manage my Lean validation. As time went on and the company was formed, I found new uses for Trello, such as managing my sprints, roadmap, personal to-do list and even product documentation. As we started ramping our 2015 hiring, our HR manager and I decided to try a new use for Trello: as a hiring board. The model we adopted was simple: cards as candidates and color-coded labels to denote our different sources (e.g. referral, recruiter, internally…
  • MVF: The Importance of Not Over-investing

    Joe Kinsella
    21 Mar 2015 | 10:24 am
    The Lean movement has made everyone aware of the importance of a feedback loop in driving the success of businesses, products and features. By driving tight and iterative Build-Measure-Learn loops, organizations can limit the risk of their investments and not overcommit resources toward initiatives that either fail or do not deliver the required results. I have blogged in the past on the importance of the Minimum Viable Feature (MVF) in my company, but recently noticed we started to drift from our roots in one important aspect: over-investing in trying to build great software behind our MVFs.
  • My Entrepreneur Not To Do List

    17 Mar 2015 | 2:43 pm
    As entrepreneurs of early stage businesses, we all aspire to help our companies navigate the turbulent waters from idea to product market fit. But once you've achieved product market fit, a new and sometimes harder challenge often arises: scaling the business. During the scaling phase, an upside to being an early member of the company is you can play a lot of roles that add value to the organization. The downside is that if you played all these roles, you will either burnout or make yourself an impediment to scale. I've been doing a poor job lately managing my To Do list. As a reminder I…

    As previously mentioned my home is FULL of carpet. When my home was built my girls were only 3 and my boys were newborns. Carpet kept the noise from running around down.

  • Nata’s Corner: April 2015

    EE Staff
    29 Mar 2015 | 7:44 am
    For those of you who participated in one of those tournament things, you’ll be amused to hear that the other half’s bracket blew up when Iowa State lost the second game of the first day. Perhaps he should have picked a different game and maybe used a different search engine. I don’t know what the weather is like in your part of the world, but we’ve been dealing with spring for about a month now. That always means lots of new things (and a few recycled old ones). One that caught everyone’s attention was a patent that was granted to Boeing for a force field.

    Chicken Little was right. Twice. Maybe even three times. The other half wants to know when he can get high speed Internet and whether the FCC’s new rules apply or whether he needs to go send a dingo to Congress by jetpack. One of the reasons I don’t use Gmail all that much is because there are a gazillion people who have sent me email and I have no idea who they are or why they wrote to me five years ago. I have to admit that it’s a typical situation – I could have done a little digging and figured it all out – but the people at CNet posted how-to turn off the…

    There are two companies who dominate the online advertising business, right? We all know it’s impossible to keep up with what Facebook does with your information, because every time someone gets a good handle on their privacy settings, they change them. But there’s a pretty straightforward list that helps you navigate what information Google stores about you. Oh, and don’t forget to come up with decent passwords. It seems like every few days, there is a story about the latest scam to hit – usually about two weeks after it’s been filling our inboxes. The most…

    No, nobody got me one for Christmas. Good thing, too, or I’d have had to hurt someone. We stayed pretty close to home this year, and just enjoyed a day of peace and quiet – something that the Other Half has been asking for for years (though if I hit the lottery in the next couple of months, I might consider this for him. And speaking of “asking for for years”, both and Wikipedia are asking for money.

  • Nata’s Corner: November 2014

    2 Nov 2014 | 9:13 am
    A month or so ago, Apple announced its Apple Pay mobile payments system and there was a lot written about how it was going to change the world with regard to using your phone to pay in stores. Not so fast, though: two major drug store chains have said “No, thanks“. Of course, the competition isn’t having things much better; CurrentC was hacked last week and it’s still in beta-testing. But I think the stories are missing the point. The other day, we were in a grocery store and instead of pulling out his card, the Other Half actually pulled a couple of bills out of his…

  • Windows RT is dead… but its most useful organs are being donated

    Brad Reed
    31 Mar 2015 | 5:15 pm
    As a platform that people would actually use, Windows RT was dead from the start. It was confusingly branded and its app ecosystem was small enough to make even Windows Phone's look robust. With the announcement of the Surface 3 on Tuesday, Windows RT is officially dead -- the new tablet will run on full Windows and will be thus be fully upgradable to Windows 10 in the fall. That said, while we (very) briefly mourn Windows RT's passing, we should take comfort in the fact that its most useful organs have been donated to other platforms. Continue reading...
  • Apple’s newest hire could be a real difference maker for Beats Music

    31 Mar 2015 | 4:30 pm
    With Apple rumored to be getting into the TV streaming business later this fall, the company recently made an extremely interesting executive hire. First spotted by Mark Gurman over at 9to5Mac, Apple last month was able to lure Mike Rockwell away from Dolby, where he most recently served as the company's Executive Vice President of Products and Technology. The Rockwell hire is particularly interesting given that his top two listed skills on his LinkedIn profile are "streaming media" and "digital video," two areas Apple has a keen interest in. Of course, Apple's Beats Music revamp is slated…

    Machinima is the art of manipulating a computer graphics engine in order to create a cinematic production. This art form was popularized in the mainstream by Red vs. Blue, a Halo machinima series that has been running since 2003. Not long ago, Valve decided to give its community the ability to make their own home movies with the Source Filmmaker software. There have been plenty of impressive productions since then, but this past weekend, we were treated to one of the best yet. Continue reading...

    For as admittedly great and revolutionary as the Model S is, Tesla's luxury sedan hasn't performed all that well in China. From regulatory hurdles regarding supercharger rollouts to practical considerations such as dense urban populations, there have been no shortage of explanations seeking to pinpoint why Tesla just hasn't been able to crack the Chinese market in a big way. Indeed, Tesla last month was forced to announce job cuts in China on account of less than stellar sales. Continue reading...

But, with further discussions it appeared a few recruiters have more of a role than many colleagues in the same business have acknowledged.

    I’m not a keyboard snob. But I love using my current keyboards now. Background: I was very happy with the Apple “chicklet” style keyboards and even wrote about it in Not the Clicky Keyboard. There I declared that clicky keyboards were not for me. I was wrong. But I did not know it at the time. A while back, my boss went on a buying bender and purchased a whole bunch of different keyboards, including the DAS and some Microsoft ones. I tried them out too. Neither of us liked any of them, so he returned them all. As a joke, I ordered the CODE keyboard to show that I could buy…

    I am writing a lot of business documents in Scrivener, and even though it’s the wrong way to do it, I use Scrivener’s format presets (think paragraph styles) to quickly format headings, bulleted lists and paragraphs in each sub-document. This way I minimize post-processing (and the business format is intentionally boring so I do not need any fancy layouts). But it’s a hassle to have to take my hands off the keyboard to click through the Format / Apply Formatting / Apply Preset menu tree or hit the tiny format preset dropdown ¶a to set the current paragraph style.

    It seems that the Google Analytics use of a public tracking code was a mistake. Anyone can use your tracking code on their site, which adds to your traffic, or they can create ghost visits and spam referrals by hammering Google Analytics with your code while never visiting your site. Oh, and the codes are easy to guess, so they do not even need to know about your site. In most cases, this is perfectly harmless (IMHO) as only Google Analytics data is affected and your reports look funny. Your ad stats, if not Google, remain the same as they are independent.

And it started to take," declares the man only introduced to me as Proc Diadochu. His manner is warm and effusive, his smile open even when discussing the virtual death of dozens.

    There are perhaps a few dozen car models globally, at most, that have so much history behind them that they instantly evoke a clear mental image — the classic shape of the Porsche 911, the taillight treatment of a Corvette. Then there's the Continental: a giant box of steel and leather, a testament to big, American-style luxury. In the ’90s and aughts, the Continental sort of circled the drain, but there was a time when this Lincoln flagship was legitimately one of the most luxurious (and expensive) cars in the world. That's the backdrop for Lincoln here in the days leading up to this…
  • Tinder says spam prevention is now 'priority number one'

    31 Mar 2015 | 5:00 am
    Tinder's spam problem is notorious and increasingly complex, but the company claims to have made inroads against it over the past year. Today, the dating app revealed details of a partnership it struck last year with TeleSign, a mobile security and fraud prevention company based in southern California. According to the two companies, TeleSign's two-step verification system has reduced the number of Tinder spambots by 90 percent since they partnered in early 2014.

    Last night I decided it was time to give Windows 10 a try. The catalyst to install the tech preview was equal measures curiosity, opportunity, and boredom. I needed to see for myself what Tom Warren’s so excited about, and I just happened to have a rarely used Windows 8.1 tablet nearby that I needed for a legacy .EXE earlier in the day. So, during a country music segment on The Voice I Googled, “how do I install Windows 10.” An embarrassing number of missteps later and my old Hotmail address was registered with Windows Insider and I was up and downloading.

    31 Mar 2015 | 8:41 am
    (Image Credit: iStockPhoto/jackscoldsweat) There's a hoax from last year making the rounds on social networks again which targets the 'Talking Angela' game and claims that a paedophile is able to watch and engage with a child from behind the virtual cat character using the device's camera and prompt children into revealing personal details and behave in questionable ways.  Although this was proven to be untrue after an investigation by internet security experts Sophos, there are no technical limitations to prevent this without raising…

    24 Mar 2015 | 5:53 pm
    (c) We’ve come a long way since the days of Atari. We now have dedicated gaming platforms with powerful processors, graphics and internet connectivity. Someone sitting in their living room in Des Moines, Iowa can be playing against gamers in Canada, England and South Africa. The overwhelming popularity of video games has created an industry valued at more than 90 billion dollars. That’s a lot of money, and it isn’t just the big developers like Electronic Arts or Ubisoft contributing to this number. There are thousands of smaller developers and new designers…
  • Opinion: In the interest of public security…

    24 Mar 2015 | 7:30 am
    (Image Credit: iStockPhoto/Bliznetsov) It seems that in the aftermath of almost every major catastrophe comes a reaction from government to increase measures to enhance public security. The atrocities of 9/11 resulted in security measures ranging from increased airport checking procedures, to face recognition devices, from random searches of internet content by intelligence officers, to the use of wiretaps and the ability to intercept and read e-mail. Many of these organisations would choose to cease their services to UK users as opposed to complying Fast forward almost a decade and a half…
